agreed. Of course, the stupid building management decided that evacuating was the right thing to do. Idiots.

So interesting you say that 'cause I'm in building management and I told my tenants I couldn't stop them from leaving if they felt they were in any danger. It was unnecessary to do so, since our building wasn't crumbling down, or on fire.

I just love how one of the Consulates in our building called to request that we give them a little warning next time: "Duck and cover, bitches, we're having an earthquake!"

Well, had it been a foreshock to a larger quake, windows could have popped out of the building, severely injuring or killing those outside. (We're in a 10-story building, but we're right next to a 30-story building). There were many injuries (and some deaths, I believe) in the '89 quake in SF attributed to falling glass.

If the building was built in the last 12 years or so,(like ours was) you're way safer staying inside unless there's evidence of damage, or other immediate danger. Even in older buildings, if you're in or around high-rises, you're better off staying inside.

There's a big plasma screen in the company's lunch area with the sound turned off and captioning turned on. I walked in to see BREAKING NEWS!!! and that was all that was on for the next 45 minutes and beyond; random footage from the air of god knows what with occasional shots of the random local citizen on his cell phone.
